OSHA and Fall Protection
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) takes workplace safety very seriously – particularly in naturally dangerous environments like the commercial real estate industry and façade access. OSHA understands that falls are rarely the result of something as simple as “user error” – they are often unfortunate but deeply complicated events that involve factors both in your control and beyond it.
OSHA doesn’t just require that fall protection systems be in place for given situations – there are also specific rules governing how those systems must be used. For example, workers must always be trained on the selection, use and maintenance of these systems. Likewise, they must be supervised while the systems are in use, and safe work procedures must be employed at all times.
Fall Protection Certification Services
ATS’ fall protection services are designed to address many of the most commonly referenced OSHA safety standard requirements for working environments just like yours. These include:
- A protection of floor openings, which is a standard that requires all openings in a floor to be protected by a guardrail system
- Powered platforms for building maintenance, which is a standard designed to establish requirements for businesses looking to install systems like transportable outriggers, powered platforms, davits systems and more
- Personal fall arrest systems as covered by ANSI Appendix C, which is a set of guidelines governing the design of system components, system performance and other criteria as they relate to fall protection systems
Maintaining OSHA safety regulations and standards can be time consuming, but it is not a road that you have to travel alone. If your organization is looking for fall protection certification services to help you maintain OSHA compliance, please contact Applied Technical Services today.
